As our last Show Choir season winds down, our group competed in the National Show Choir Championship in Chicago last weekend. Because it's our last, we made a mini family vacation out of it.
I love Chicago...and this trip did not alter that feeling at all. It was even more special that we were able to share the experience with our entire family, including my mom :)
My love affair with Instagram hasn't waned a bit since I first posted about my addiction, so today's Snapshots feature Chicago photos from my Instagram collection:
This photo was taken on top of the Sears Tower...I took a picture of the picture this small crew bought after their experience. My mom and I both have checked this off our lists on previous trips so we were shopping at Stuart Weitzman and Chanel while the husband took the youngest and the oldest to the top of the tower.
Ahem, did I mention Stuart Weitzman?
And, please, please don't forget about Chanel...please.
My little Cubbies! :) We froze our patooties off, but it was FABULOUS!
Chicago from our hotel window the first morning...rainy, cold and wet the first day.
This is one of the reason I love the Head of My Household...I woke up each morning to this whopper cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee...isn't he a great guy!!! I never saw the Dunkin Donuts downtown where we were staying so I have no idea how far he had to walk for this...really, no idea.
Yes, ladies, he's mine. :)
Battling the wind after dinner one night, the youngest found this statue adorned with a Blackhawks jersey outside one of the other hotels...she let the statue block the wind off her while we waited on our silly big girls who weren't paying attention and got stuck on the other side of the road from us. Really, big girls, this ain't rural MS.
Giordano's...a must stop on any Chicago trip...but don't touch my youngest's spaghetti...them's fightin' words.
The youngest and the oldest pose in front of the tulips that were all over the city...how in the world they were alive and blooming so well in the frosty temps and blustery wind, I have no idea.
Our show choir girl and the youngest...more tulips :)
Wrigley Field anyone? Great seats but FREEZING. We stocked up on scarves and caps and even blankets before we went in. My feet were numb when we left bc I left my mom's boots at her house instead of mine :)
Dinner choices are serious business!
My mom and I...we'll frame this photo :)
My youngest Cub...who bought this cap and wore it for the rest of the trip...even slept in it two nights...gotta love her! :)
